I was doing a little browsing this evening and noticed that my law school classmate, Laine Wagenseller, has started a real estate blog aptly named SoCal Real Estate Law.
I haven't spoken to or seen Laine since law school, but I remember him as a very bright and good guy. It is therefore easy for me to recommend that you check out his blog, and, in particular, this post on what I also think is a very real problem: the decline of accountability when people make bad or stupid business decisions.
Bravo, Laine! And welcome to the fray. Glad to see you are doing well in the world.
